Does Angelina Jolie have borderline personality disorder?

Mother and daughter both are classic BPD cases. Black and white thinking (people are all good or all bad). Extreme moodiness including flying off on rages for no reason. Anger for perceived slights that lives on for decades without diminishing. Playing the perpetual victim in all relationships--everyone does them wrong at some point. Complete alienation---once they are done with you, they are done, and move on to another victim. No compromise and no forgiveness--ever. Often narcissism goes hand in hand. They are incapable of thinking about anyone but themselves. Even when they 'seem' to show empathy or selflessness (adopting a bunch of kids) it is calculated and done for self serving reasons---to appear saintly and good.

134. ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 08/09 **#5**
What nobody is talking about in this A+ list divorce is how broke this former A+ list mostly movie actress is. She has spent almost every dollar she has ever earned because she couldn't control her crazy spending. Hundreds of millions of dollars. She is like the female Johnny Depp minus the rock star fetish and the beating of women. Spanking yes, but no beatings. Angelina Jolie (Brad Pitt)

From the DSM-IV:


A pervasive pattern of instability of interpersonal relationships, self-image, and affects, and marked impulsivity beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:

1. frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment. Note: Do not include suicidal or self-mutilating behavior covered in Criterion 5.

2. a pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation.

3. identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self.

4. impulsivity in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging (e.g., spending, sex, substance abuse, reckless driving, binge eating). Note: Do not include suicidal or self-mutilating behavior covered in Criterion 5.

5. recurrent suicidal behavior, gestures, or threats, or self-mutilating behavior.

6. affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood (e.g., intense episodic dysphoria, irritability, or anxiety usually lasting a few hours and only rarely more than a few days).

7. chronic feelings of emptiness.

8. inappropriate, intense anger or difficulty controlling anger (e.g., frequent displays of temper, constant anger, recurrent physical fights).

9. transient, stress-related paranoid ideation or severe dissociative symptoms.


And that's why I said "yes", I've read the DSM too!

And just so you know, that "Entertainment Lawyer" creep is totally unreliable. He takes information from publicists, from unreliable anonymous sources, and makes shit up.


What are some behavioral examples of Angelina Jolie that show that she has borderline personality disorder?

Is it really true that Angelina Jolie has borderline personality disorder?


She crazy


I read the andrew morton book and her mother sounded literally insane. Angelina didn't come across the same way in the book, but her humanitarianism is all fake, the opposite of Madonna's for instance.
